EGST 0202 - Research Methods: Exploration, Evidence and Engagement

Credits: 3

Examines and engages the processes through which researchers make claims about the social world and specifically about relationships structured by the intersections and layering of race, class, ethnicity, and gender/sexuality. Strategies for gathering data and analyzing the human experience using social science methodologies are compared and contrasted with methods in the humanities. Examination of crucial debates surrounding objectivity/subjectivity, political uses of data, and other conflicts, provides students with instruction in ways of seeing the world and making claims about it, and the implications of such perspectives.
